Bicycle Queensland (BQ) is the pre-eminent voice for community cycling in Queensland. With 18,000 members statewide and 32,000 subscribers BQ exist to help Queenslanders cycle safely. Bicycle Queensland are dedicated to the promotion of bike riding as a driving force for individual health and well-being, and the empowerment of sustainable development.
Over the past 40 years BQ has grown from a small collective of concerned citizens to one of the largest and most influential community cycling organisations in Australia.
BQ is the state’s foremost provider of comprehensive insurance and legal advice for bike riders, and is also the powerhouse behind iconic cycling events such as the Great Brisbane Bike Ride, the Brisbane to Gold Coast Cycle Challenge, and Cycle Queensland.
Bike sharing in Queensland just got easier, with thanks to a new partnership between Bicycle Queensland and the world’s leading equipment sharing platform, Quipmo.
Thousands of Queensland bike owners stand to profit from the partnership which is expected to offer a new sightseeing draw card for domestic and international tourists. More than 24 million domestic and international overnight visitors travel to Queensland each year and we’d love to get them cycling.
CEO of Bicycle Queensland, Anne Savage, urged Queensland bike owners to register on Quipmo. “We’re pleased to partner with Quipmo to make this platform widely available in Queensland. It’s a great way for Queenslanders to list their bikes online for the enjoyment of a local neighbour or international visitor. This partnership is key to our mission and will encourage residents and tourists alike to cycle for fun, to socialise, and to experience Queensland’s culturally diverse communities and natural environment and there’s no better way to see the sunshine state than by riding a bike and enjoying our great outdoors.”
